Veterans on why teachers should not be armed

Some veterans are coming out against the idea of arming teachers. They say they know from experience what semi-automatic weapons can do. They’ve been writing blog posts and op-eds, and tweeting with #VetsForGunReform. Bob Bateman and Joe Plenzler started the movement. They served in Iraq and Afghanistan.
